Night Prayer

A man once said to Hasan al-Basri: “I disobey God and commit sins, but I find that I am still granted things of the world and experience success in it and am not cut off from anything!”

Hasan al Basri replied: “Do you pray in the night?”

The man said: “No.”

Hasan al-Basri said: “Then it is enough that God has cut you off from intimate conversation with Him.”

May God forgive us and grant us a portion of His night worship.
